There are a number of punters who enjoy taking short prices about horses and for those who do, Wednesday’s race meeting at Durbanville offers some handy opportunities.
In fact, a BETONTAB All To Come could be the way to go on Races 1 and 3.
In Race 1, a Maiden Juvenile Plate over 1250m, well-related Pucallpa should shed her maiden tag. She is by Vercingetorix out of Candy Stripes mare Peru and is a full sister to Grade 1 Cape Derby winner Pomp And Power and a half sister to Punta Arenas, who was narrowly touched off by Power King in the Durban July.
Pucallpa, which is the name of a city in Peru, made a promising debut against winners in a feature for two-year-olds on the same day her brother won the Cape Derby and should, with natural improvement expected, capitalise on the drop in class by opening her account under Craig Zackey, who rode her on debut.
She produced the fastest last 400m to finish third, ending up just 0.80 lengths behind Epsom Girl.
The second leg of the All To Come comes up in Race 3, a Maiden Juvenile Plate over 1250m, where Candice Bass-Robinson sends out Charlie Malone who boasts the strongest form.
He has placed in both of his starts, is well drawn at No 4 and has Aldo Domeyer in the irons.
